Mileaters walk along the Stour

dbf06300 632f 4ca4 844b 3dfdfa9ea1d3
Eleven Mileaters and one dog enjoyed a gentle walk from the  Fiddleford Inn, through countryside, woods and water meadows. In early September the landscape was at its late summer best with muted colours and a real stillness. We picked blackberries and paused for coffee at Sturminster Newton mill, one of the few remaining watermills in Dorset. As if on cue, a pair of swans and their six cygnets drifted into view. At St Mary’s church in Sturminster we marvelled at the rare and richly coloured window, depicting St Elizabeth and St Barbara on either side of the Virgin and Child, designed by Harry Clarke in pure Art Deco design.

Then across water meadows to Fiddleford Mill, formerly a corn mill, where we learned about the Archimedes screw, a very unusual way of harnessing hydro electric power, finally returning to the inn for lunch. Gerald joined us there to celebrate Rosie’s birthday. (thank you Rosie for the drinks all round)
